Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties; originally from France’s Burgundy region, today it is planted almost anywhere that wine is produced. Chardonnay has a relatively neutral flavour profile, which allows winemakers to use a variety of skills and techniques to create a wide range of styles from taut and linear to rich and buttery.
Made by James Halliday Winemaker of the Year 2019. A distinctive and inviting Chardonnay made from estate-grown premium-growers fruit from Margaret River. The wine exhibits ripe citrus and white stone fruit characters, whilst elegant use of French oak ensures a long and stylish finish. Incredible quality and complexity for the price.

“Effortless to taste, yet there are so many layers to this: creamed honey,
lemon curd, ginger fluff cake, all manner of stone fruit and their skins plus a refined texture. There’s almost an overload of flavour but then the sparky acidity tucks in everything neatly.” Halliday Wine Companion

"The 'lucky' 7th vintage, whole-bunch pressed, fermented in French barriques (50% new), 100% mlf, matured for 18 months. The brilliant straw-green hue says there's something special here, for it's incredibly detailed, precise and balanced, the three spears of perfect varietal fruit, high quality oak and acidity all unsheathed, but not required to be thrown. Only 88 dozen made." Halliday Wine Companion

“Its quality is bell clear. It’s almost rich, almost elegant, not especially
complex but not simple either. Oak and fruit form a happy marriage before
striding out to a refreshing, confident finish. It’s a beautiful chardonnay.” Halliday Wine Companion
